What to Expect When You Get a Furnace Installed09/29/2017So, you’re getting a new furnace. It may be a big investment, but an efficient, well-running furnace is key to your comfort. A furnace installation is a big job, and you can anticipate it to take some time. To help make the process go as quickly and smoothly as possible, there are a few things you can do to get ready. That way, you’ll be back to cozy comfort in no time. It’s very common for a furnace room to double as storage space. So, if there are items near your furnace or in its path, move it a safe distance away for the installation. Remember that the US Air Heating and Cooling technicians will need sufficient room by the furnace to move around as they work. Clearing the area will provide them space and will help guard your belongings from being damaged. You can be sure that our technicians will take extra care to keep your home clean and your belongings undamaged. It’s also a good idea to move any furniture that’s in the path to the furnace room. You should be aware that you may need a new thermostat, depending on the model of your previous furnace. Plus, now is a great time to upgrade to a smart thermostat to take full advantage of all the benefits of a new furnace. A smart thermostat can help guarantee peak comfort and keep your home at your desired temperatures 24/7. If you need or selected a new thermostat installed during your furnace installation, you may also want to find touchup paint if it’s a different size or shape from your previous thermostat to clean up your wall.
